Building Safety/Security Occupant Emergency Program
The purpose of this regulation is to prescribe general facility protection policies for the Department of Agriculture (USDA) Nationwide.
This regulation revises the USDA Facility Protection Policy and adopts the provisions set forth in Section 101-20.103 of the Federal Property Management Regulations (FPMR), Title 41 Code of Federal Regulations (C.F.R.), Subpart 101-20.1 (see Appendix A). This regulation also adopts the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) standard, 29 C.F.R. 1910.38 (see Appendix B), as the requirement for the Occupant Emergency Program for those facilities where this regulation may conflict with standards imposed on occupants in a commonly occupied facility.
Departmental Regulation 1650-2, dated February 21, 1986, and Agriculture Property Management Regulations, Subchapter "N", Subpart 104-55.8 are hereby superseded.
